Couple Therapy 

 75-90 MINUTE SESSIONS

Couples seek professional help for a wide array of issues, but common themes are sexual dissatisfaction, infidelity, parenting disagreements, and emotional disconnect. Couple therapy can also be used as a preventative maintenance for partners in a satisfying relationship, for couples about to be married, or for couples who want to deepen their commitment level.

My approach to couples therapy uses emotionally-focused couples therapy (EFT). EFT is one of the most empirically supported models of couples therapy in the world with a wealth of outcome research to support its effectiveness. I have attended a Certified EFT Externship and am currently being supervised by a certified EFT Therapist.

At the core of EFT is attachment theory which is a scientific model that explains how humans form lasting bonds and repair insecure relationships. EFT is relatively short-term compared to other models in that couples typically are in treatment for 8-20 weekly sessions. There has been a significant amount of scientific research that supports EFT as a model that can help to alleviate even the most serious relationship problems (e.g., affair, trauma, loss).

Here are a few potential issues that are often addressed in couples therapy:

  • Adjustment to a medical illness
  • Anxiety and/or depression
  • Communication problems
  • Divorce/separation
  • Grief and loss
  • Infertility 
  • Infidelity/affair
  • Miscarriage
  • Parenting challenges
  • Pregnancy, prenatal, postpartum 
  • Pre-marital counseling
  • Sex, sexuality and intimacy
  • Traumatic experience
  • Trust issues
